Jade Jones: Olympic Champion Wins World Grand Final Bronze
British fighter Jade Jones won bronze at the World Taekwondo Grand Final as team-mate Bianca Walkden secured Team GB another spot at next year’s Rio Olympics.
Jones, 22, beat Swede Nikita Glasnovic in the third-place fight-off in Mexico.
The London 2012 gold medallist had already secured a -57kg place for Britain at Rio 2016.
Walkden lost in the quarter-finals, but earned enough points to guarantee Britain an Olympic +67kg berth.
The season-ending event in Mexico City was the last opportunity for fighters to secure the top-six world ranking that would secure their nation a Rio place – something Briton Lutalo Muhammad achieved with -80kg victory on Saturday.
